You may have noticed that before JavaOne there wasn't the normal amount of blogging in the Java/JavaFX world. But during and since, its definitely made up for lost ground. Wow.
Like about JavaFX (eyes on the prizes ?). Obviously, there's been a bunch of blogging about the new features in JavaFX 1.2, that was released at the show. Top 5 feature lists, top 10 feature lists, the new layout support, experiences deploying from NetBeans to the new JavaFX 1.2 phones, taking the new charting component out for a spin, and evaluating the new performance improvements. And the series on Pacman in JavaFX is now complete.
Of course the samples gallery got an upgrade too: simply the quickest way to see what JavaFX can do nowadays.
Founding Swing team member Amy Fowler did another awesome blog on how to use JavaFX to give your Swing app a zappier look, and Swing/FX team stars Richard Bair and Jasper Potts have started a new multi-player blog where they've already taking a fascinating deep dive on how to skin JavaFX app. And as Tor so ably demonstrated, the upcoming (end of the year) designer tool is stirring up some interest.
Interest in JavaFX is definitely up since JavaOne !
